Found it to be loud, not conducive for conversation. Food was ok, found most of it spicy. Waited a long time for meals.

Contemporary vibe and pretty artsy atmosphere. The chicken riggies is to die for. The specials change regularly. The crew is very efficient. Fully stocked bar. Hard to find a table on the weekend without a wait.
